Saab launches special-edition 9-5

Saab has launched a special version of its 9-5, called the Turbo Edition.

It is available with a choice of three engines: 148bhp 2.0-litre and 255bhp 2.3-litre petrols and a 148bhp 1.9-litre diesel.

Extra equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, heated leather sport seats in the front and rear, an electrically adjusted driver's seat, and headlight washers.

The car is available as a saloon and estate, and with manual or automatic transmission. Prices start from 19,995 - 135 less than the lowest-priced model in the range, the 2.0-litre petrol Airflow saloon.

A higher-performance 9-5 Aero Turbo Edition is also available.

It is only available with the 255bhp 2.3-litre petrol engine, and adds a DVD satellite-navigation system and dual electric seats to the standard specification.

The Aero model is available in saloon or estate forms, and with a manual or automatic gearbox.

Prices start from 24,995, which places it between the Linear and range-topping Vector Sport models in the price list.
